Come to our next Board Meeting in public

7th November 2018

Healthwatch is helping to improve access for disabled people –  find out how things are changing.

  • Wednesday 14 November 2018, 7:00pm – 9:00pm, The Wordsworth Room, March Library, City Road, March, PE15 9LT

Our Board meets every two monthly in public. These meetings are an opportunity for you to find out about the work we are doing, share your experiences of health or social care services and get involved.

At this meeting the Board will get an update on the progress made by local providers regarding the NHS Accessible Information Standard.

Our Accessible Information as Standard report, published last year, showed that local health and care services were not always giving people with sensory and learning disabilities information in a format they could understand.

We made a number of recommendations as part of the report and have been asking health and care organisations what they are doing to make access to information fair.
